Dental treatment does not need to be difficult, painful, or anxiety provoking. The marvels of modern dentistry are making it easier than ever before for patients of all ages to breeze through dental treatment without fear or anxiety. Here are just some of the reasons that patients love sedation treatment options, as told to our Saint Louis dentists.
The first, and most obvious, benefit of sedation treatment is that it takes the edge off of the dental treatment process. So if you are someone who has a fear of the dentist, or who has even avoided dental treatment in the past because you felt so anxious, sedation treatment might be able to help you calm down. At the same time sedation treatment helps patients avoid pain in the dentist’s chair, and is thus great for patients who suffer from dental sensitivity.
Sedation treatment can also make your treatment timeline more efficient, by allowing our dental team to complete more dental treatments in a shorter period of time. You see, when a patient uses sedation dentistry, he or she stays more relaxed and is thus able to stay in the dentist’s chair for longer stretches. A large number of people who want to complete many different dental treatments in succession choose to do so with sedation treatment.
Oral conscious sedation has the additional benefit of providing an amnesiac effect post-treatment. This means that once treatment is over and the effects of sedation have worn off, you likely will not remember the details of your treatment process.
These are some of the key advantages of sedation dentistry treatment. Many of our patients have reported that sedation treatments have completely revolutionized the way that they view dentistry in general.
